Atlanta, Georgia- Singer, songwriter, and Tony-nominated performer Mx. Justin Vivian Bond* literally lets it all hang out in her book Tango: My Childhood, Backwards, and in High Heels.
The story delves to back to Mx. Bond's youth and her first sexual experiences and her continuous attempts in trying to fit in.
In a time when sexual identity boundaries were stringent, Tango holds nothing back as this coming of age story exposes all.
The title is a bit misleading; I originally thought it dealt with Tango dancing. However it does delve into the delicate dance that one has to take if you don't quite fit into society's standard shoes.
The dialogue is funny, touching, and raw as you peek into the life of this great American performer. Overall, this book reaffirms that regardless of what we are on the outside, we are all the same on the inside.
*Mx. / V is the preferable prefix in referring to Justin Vivian
